BRASELTON, Georgia (September 30, 2015)- Continuing his efforts to drive in a variety of machinery around the country, World Stage Racing’s Brian Wong will once again take the wheel in the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North America as a supporting event to this weekend’s Petit Le Mans at the famed Road Atlanta. Returning to O’Gara Motorsport in the No. 69 Lamborghini Huracán LP 620-2, the 26-year old is in search of continued podium results.
“Anytime you can be part of an event like this you can’t help but be thankful,” stated Brian Wong. “Road Atlanta is one of the most unique and impressive tracks in the country, and there is simply no better weekend to be here than during Petit Le Mans. I have some great memories here over the years, and really hoping to add to that this week. The team at O’Gara Motorsport has done a great job getting the car ready, and my teammate Tom continues to progress during every weekend. There is some stiff competition here so you never know what can happen, but we’re definitely looking forward to it.”
After a rough showing at the most recent round at Circuit of the Americas, the Californian is hoping he and his teammate, team owner Tom O’Gara, can return to the podium for the second time this year. With 25 cars on entry, the duo are fully aware of the challenges ahead, but look forward to showing in front of a strong crowd.
With the 2.5-mile, 12-turn circuit providing an endless series of challenges that include fast corners, elevation changes, and a number of unique corners exclusive to the circuit, the competition should be tough. Luckily for Wong, however, the Newport Beach native is no stranger to success at the venue. In 2011, Wong co-drove a tremendous event at Petit Le Mans to take second, his first podium in the former American Le Mans Series, the first Chinese-American to do so.
While the Super Trofeo series still has one event to go in their championship, concluding in two months at Sebring International Raceway, the event will serve as the finale for the premier TUDOR United SportsCar Championship. As part of the Petit Le Mans weekend, the event always draws some of the largest crowds of the year, and both Wong and World Stage Racing look forward to showcasing their unique goals.
Both Wong and O’Gara have already taken to the track during preliminary test sessions yesterday, with Race One beginning today. Today’s race will begin at 2:15PM ET, with Race Two taking place one day later at 5:25 PM ET. The team will provide continuous updates over their Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram feeds.
